Undiagnosed and untreated neurological disorders in the world's most resource-deprived countries lead to countless cases of preventable suffering, often due to health care providers not having access to basic equipment and education. For over 20 years, the World Neurology Foundation (WNFO) has served over 26 of these countries, improving patient care by providing basic medical equipment and educational resources at no cost to health care professionals.
The WNFO "Toolkits for Africa" initiative provides the basic medical equipment used in a standard neurology examination, from a stethoscope and reflex hammer to stroke scales and eye charts. We have contributed hundreds of toolkits over the past decade to African physicians and clinical officers, impacting patient care in 14 different countries. Their words of gratitude in return have been our reward!
We currently have requests for Toolkits from Uganda, Malawi, and Zambia. We invite you to join us in making these donations a reality by offsetting our costs to obtain equipment and assure shipping directly to providers in need. The $5000 goal of this campaign will provide over 50 Toolkits to 10 different regions, impacting neurological care and alleviating suffering for thousands of adults and children in these low-resourced countries. The WNFO is a 501(c)(3) charity organization, and your donation is tax-deductible.
On behalf of our Board of Trustees and Staff, we thank you sincerely for your support!
